East Coast Passage Express
Join us for a Newport sightseeing boat tour! This is a great cruise on our motor yacht to get an overview of Newport’s waterfront and the history on many of the points of interest. Rum Runner II was built in the 1920s as an original rum smuggler during the height of prohibition. While back in the 1930s she was outrunning the Coast Guard, today she is a Coast Guard inspected vessel that will take you on a safe and scenic passage through Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay. The East Passage Express is approximately 75 minutes long and includes a formally narrated tour. We’ll take you up close along the shoreline for some breathtaking views of a number of private estates and Fort Adams. Remember that weather conditions can change rapidly, and temperatures are generally 10 degrees lower on the water. Please dress accordingly. Sunscreen and a hat are suggested when sitting on deck. Don’t forget to bring a camera! If you want to be guaranteed a seat on board, please reserve ahead – particularly on weekends.
